Spring is here. And a little spring cleaning can go a long way toward future growth.
Now is the perfect opportunity to evaluate the systems and processes powering your business and ensure peak performance. Take time now to plan upgrades and improvements that will boost operational efficiencies and keep your critical infrastructure primed to meet increasing demands as business accelerates in months ahead.
Here are a few recommendations from Donwil to get you ready.
Signs It’s Time to Spring Clean Your Facility
Your critical infrastructure is an investment, and if you’re not managing it over time, it can become stagnant if you’re not properly maintaining it. Here are a few telltale signs you’re in need of “deep” cleaning:
- Equipment/Systems can’t keep up with your business demands.
- Operational costs are rising due to inefficiencies.
- Reactively investing in aging infrastructure.
- Limited visibility across equipment, facilities, or locations.
- There’s no long-term strategy for growth.
If you can relate to any of the above, then it’s time for a change. Not sure where to get started? Consider prioritizing these elements on your to-do list.
Assess Thermal Management Systems
It’s essential to keep your equipment operating at the proper temperature, but have you considered solutions that can maximize efficiency and improve performance?
Thermal systems are responsible for a large portion of your energy expenditures. Keeping your equipment at proper operating temperatures is crucial in minimizing the risk of equipment failure and potential downtime, which can cost significant time and money.
Consider upgrading or retrofitting your cooling systems with the latest energy-efficient technologies to save costs without having to replace entire units. By being proactive and taking the necessary steps to maintain your thermal systems, you can ensure their longevity and ultimately maximize your investment.
Right-size Your UPS
There’s nothing worse than investing in equipment and systems that can’t keep up with the demands of your business. To improve the efficiency of your environment, having a reliable, high-performing Uninterruptable Power Supply system is a must.
Not only will it increase the efficiency of your environment, but it can also save you money in the long run. These high-performing systems ensure that energy consumption is reduced, excess energy expenditure is lowered, and overall operating costs are minimized on your energy bill. Don’t let unreliable equipment hold you back
At Donwil, we recommend a solution like Vertiv™ Liebert® PSI5 UPS. The Liebert® PSI5 UPS features an innovative advanced line-interactive design incorporating buck/boost Automatic Voltage Regulation (AVR) technology. This protects against utility voltage fluctuation by raising and lowering utility power to the level needed by the connected equipment.
Boost Visibility with a Monitoring Tool
Have you ever wished you could know what’s going on with your equipment without having to physically monitor it? Well, thanks to remote monitoring systems and services, that’s now a reality. These systems add efficiency to your operations by providing 24/7 visibility into critical systems and allowing for early detection and quick action in response to anomalies. Plus, remote management and maintenance of equipment are now possible. This means you can focus on other aspects of your business while still ensuring everything is running smoothly.
By using tools like Critical Labs, you can monitor and report on the health of all your equipment in one convenient, cloud-based web app. This means that you can rest easy knowing that your facility is running smoothly and that any issues will be caught early so that you can address them before they become bigger problems.
Invest in VRF
If you’re looking for an efficient and flexible HVAC system for your building, look no further than Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) systems. These innovative systems are a far cry from the outdated and bulky packaged or ducted systems of the past. VRF systems offer individualized control for each zone of your building, with the ability to adjust heating and cooling precisely to meet the unique needs of each space. This makes VRF an especially ideal choice for small to mid-sized buildings with multiple zones, which tend to have varying heating and cooling requirements.
